Sunseed – The Journey.
This documentary opens a window into “where it all began” as far as the spiritual revolution that was happening in the 60″s & 70’s, the “dawning of a New Age”.
In the 1960s and 1970s, many teachers and gurus from the East were called to the West to share their approaches to theology and timeless traditions of meditation, yoga, and spiritual understanding. It was the dawning of a New Age. What resulted was an awakening and a transformational movement that is still rocking the culture today.
Narrated by Peter Coyote. Featuring Ram Dass, Murshid Samuel L. Lewis, Pir Vilayat Khan, Swami Satchidananda, Swami Muktananda, Roshi Shunryu Suzuki, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, Lama Anagarika Govinda, Yogi Bhajan, Maharaji Virsa Singh, Stephen Gaskin, Hilda Charlton, Joe Miller, Gavin Arthur, Maharaj Neem Karoli, with personal comments from the director, Amertat Cohn.
Tania Rashida and David Jamal
They have been working for 10 years with Dances of Universal Peace and the investigation of ancient songs and traditional dances of the Andes, the Amazon, and different traditions. During this time they have been sharing these arts as a form of an encounter between human beings with the nature cycles, in many cases as a medicine to heal deep wounds in territories and hearts such as Putumayo and other places in Colombia that have been hit hard by the armed conflict and drug trafficking.
They currently live and work at the La Realidad Experimental Station, a project developed in Putumayo dedicated to the regeneration of the Andean-Amazon ecosystem as a prayer for re-establish our connection with the Tree of Life.
